I would verify the actual oil pressure is with a "wet gauge'. The sending unit may be bad. I would also verify if it's idling at the right idle speed.

I have a 02' chevy cavilar. This morning ,i left the house and didnt get about a mile down the road and the oil light flickered on and off a few times . So i checked the oil and it was full.


if it didn`t make any ticking noise and you say oil level is full then probably the oil pressure switch is the problem and needs replacing. however it wouldn`t hurt to have the oil pressure checked.

1995 Ford Windstar Engine Knocking at startup. Driven 2800 miles since last oil/filter change. Oil level SAT, Coolant level SAT and no visible leakage. Engine completely rebuilt 2 years ago. Engine has...


No if the oil light has flickered you have oil pressure loss some time just belive the sensor do help us out. lifter do not cause oil pressure loss pressure is built in the rotation of the crankshaft. The knock under the plenum will point you to that cylinder that is affected, (main bearing) as for a 1995 the injectors can only cause a misfire but no knocking noise,will they honor the warranty

Bought the envoy w/ 70,000 miles, fresh oil change. @ 74,000 miles it was 1.5 qrts low, put in 5w30, checked oil 2 weeks later it was 1 qrt low. do not see smoke or any leaking.


I just bought a 2005 envoy too. I read in the manual that the 4.6 6 cyl engine needs 7 qts total. 2 Over the normal oil change. Is it possible it wasn't low to start? I noticed when Walmart changed the oil they charged extra for the change because it needed the two extra qts. However my dip stick has oil over the full mark. Seemed strange but I haven't had any leaks and after 3k mile no change in level. Make sure you had the correct about the first time.

Oil light flickers on and off however dipstick is showing full of oil. Suggestions? Thanks....


One of two things may be happening. If the oil light stays off until the engine warms up and then begins to flicker on/off when you are idling & in gear [say at a stop sign] then you could actually have low oil pressure due to worn internal engine parts, OR, you could have a faulty sending unit that is reading the pressure incorrectly [usually low] and turning on the light. The best way to find out for sure is to have someone remove the sender and thread in an oil pressure test gauge to check and see exactly how much oil pressure you really have when the engine is first started and fully warmed up. You could just simply replace the sender and if the flickering is gone after that then you should be ok but if the flickering continues then odds are you actually do have low oil pressure. I would strongly recommend having the oil pressure tested for peace of mind then you'll know for certain what is happening. Engine bearings don't survive very long without sufficient oil pressure so you should have it checked out asap.

Where is the water pump on a 1995 tarus


Do you have a head gasket leak. Check all hoses for leaks. Also check oil dipstick for signs of white residue. This indicates antifreese leak into oil. Check muffler extension . Put finger into the pipe & smell odor. If it has an antifreese smell,it is probably a headgasket leak especially if over 70,000 miles on engine. Also your thermostat may be sticking & forcing boil over. These are a few things to check before you proceed. Good luck!

1995 Jaguar XJ6 oil pressure gauge


This is OK. Oil pressure is always higher when the engine is cold.

As an engine accumulates miles the pressure will start to drop due to bearing clearances increasing.

If this just started to happen you may want to replace the oil filter and or oil pressure sending unit.

My oil light will flicker on for a second when I apply the brakes in my 2007 Toyota Camry with 70,000 miles, that also had an oil change 2000 miles ago. Any thoughts on why?


Your oil sensor may be faulty, or your oil may be low, or your may have a leak. By taking your foot off the gas, you're reducing the oil pressure

My 1995 Acura Legend has a oil light that comes of and on. I recently drove it 50 miles when off the highway the car shut down on me. But turns over when trying to restart.


When your oil light often refered to as a "dummy light" comes on you should immediatly shurt your car off and call a friend to bring you oil. If you have checked your Oil (with the car off and sitting for a few minutes) and it is all the way to the second dot on the dipstick then your oil level sensor needs to be replaced.

Oil pressure


Could be the oil pump going bad. The oil sensor registers oil pressure, not oil level. If it isn't pumping oil, the light will come on.
